The Akan tribal people of Ghana in West Africa believe that the past serves as a guide for planning our future.
The Sankofa bird with its head turned backwards taking an egg off its back symbolizes taking from the past what is good and bringing it into the present in order to make positive progress through benevolent use of knowledge.
The mission of the Sankofa Project located at St. Peter’s AME Church is to provide an environment for people of all ages to look back at, reflect on, and learn from our history, traditions and values to take action on issues of race, class, and culture. These formal, guided and experiential opportunities promote transformation in individual, family and community life. Education, insight and skill building are all critical components for transformation.
